>Eurovision 2008: Timbaland Continues His World Domination

>Perhaps it’s the money.

Perhaps it’s the bragging rights.

Perhaps it’s the challenge.

Timbaland is producing Dima Bilan’s song for this year’s Russian National Final.

Okay, it’s definitely the money then.

    >Just spitballing myself here, but I guess producing a song is a bit like being a stylist: You don’t make the outfit, but you know which accessories et. al. look best with it.So he’ll give it some random beatboxes in places, I reckon.All that said, I think there are some producers that are also writers as well. I think the article seems to suggest that whether or not Timbaland is one of these types, he’s not writing this one.
